A Dress for SweetBean

The last time I visited my Maryland family, I made a dress for this little girl, whom we call "SweetBean." When her mother told her I'd be visiting, the first thing she asked was "Can Auntie make me a dress?"

The answer was a resounding YES!  We went shopping on Monday and chose the fabric for this little dress together.  This is her trying the dress on so I could see how it fit. She was so eager to try it on she didn't even take her pants off. You can see how happy she is!

Now the dress is finished, and I will be leaving today to go back to D.C. for a few more days of sight-seeing and museum-hopping.

You really didn't think I could go ten days without sewing anything, did you?
